Today you can still see the Temple of the Sun and the Temple of the Moon, which the Incas built. The temple of the sun has a special geometry. The terraces have the shape of a truncated pyramidal body and cover the interior of the temple rooms. On the upper terrace, the solar cult was held, which was the main ceremony of the Inca culture. The remains of painting suggest that the temple was originally painted in red.
The Spaniards, who arrived in Lima with Francisco Pizarro, desecrated the temple and burned the wooden statue of the god Pachacámac. In front of the temple there is a place that was probably used by the pilgrims as a place of meeting and residence. The lunar temple, whose name is still in dispute today, shows many of the typical characteristics of the Inca architectural style, including the trapezoidal niches, which are believed to be images of the gods. In addition to the sacred buildings, there are also buildings for daily use on the site, such as apartments and administrative buildings, as well as some pyramids on ramps, although in a more advanced stage of decomposition. Of particular value is the so-called painted temple, on whose walls you can see drawings of fish, birds and plants.
